March, 2020 showed the whole world that whatever they thought they were doing that was so important, was not really that important. An unseen enemy crept in and took over! It’s been six months of watching the ravaging effects of this deadly disease. Yet, time has continued to march on; the sun has risen every day in the east and set every day in the west. We yet have 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the months are apportioned as they always were. There has yet been births and marriages and graduations and job promotions… There has been amidst the tears -laughter and joy!

We are now at the last quarter. What do we have to look forward to? In my heart I kept hearing, "He’s going to roa-r-r-r...

And no one in Heaven or upon the earth or under the earth was able to open the book, or even to look at it. I began to weep bitterly because no one could be found fit to open the book, or even to look at it, when one ofthe elders said to me, "Do not weep. See, the lion from the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has won the victory and is able to open the book and break its seven seals." Revelation 5:3-5 (PHILLIPS)

Yes, when there is no answer that we can look to; when no one can bring a viable solution, there is ONE who has been found worhty to settle the matter: He is "the lion from the tribe of Judah, the root of David" – it is HE who has won the victory and He will always win the victory.

So when the enemy whispers in your ear and tries to bring fear in your heart remember:

…Let hope arise and make the darkness hide
My faith is dead I need resurrection somehow
Now I’m lost in Your freedom
In this world I’ll overcome 

My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion
God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion

Roaring, He’s roaring, He’s…"
